Dog Training Classes in Metro Detroit and Ferndale

Impulse Control

About Impulse Control Class

This class is for dogs of any age. However, we recommend progressing in to this class after completing a Puppy class or Dog Basics class.  Dogs should know how to “sit” and “down” reliably. 

Impulse Control class is designed to build our skills to read cues and to recognize environmental distractions. In this class you will train your dog to find his focus and be able to pay attention to his handler under the most distracting circumstances. Even if your pup has some great concentration skills this Impulse Control training will build and reinforce desirable long-lasting habits.  At Fido our Trainers utilize reward based training techniques to build self-control and help your pup avoid temptations such as food on the ground, toys, chasing critters, jumping up, and pulling to greet other people or dogs. You’ll strengthen the bond between you and your dog while she’s learning to wait for your cues and reap the rewards.

Dogs who are reactive to people or other dogs may register for this class. Please contact us with any questions by emailing info@fidodogtraining.com or calling 248-607-9350.

At Fido we begin Impulse Control with a single class session for humans only.  This session is reserved as a dedicated meeting for Fido Trainers and their Students. Our Trainers discuss curriculum, explore expectations and set personal goals with each member of the class. Our Trainers want to know why each Student registered for the class and what they hope to take away from the training experience. They utilize this time to map out a strategy for success. In doing this we empower every member of the class to hit the ground running in the weeks to follow when the dogs are present and our plans are put to work.

At Fido class sizes are kept small and classes fill quickly.  Reserve your seat today in one of our upcoming classes listed below.
